  1. I've been thinking about surgery for years. My weight has only once been under 200lb in the last 12 years (I'm 32). One night I mentioned to my husband that I would do it in a heartbeat if I could and he said to go for it. I made an appointment for surgery in Mexico thinking that I would have to wait a year or more to get it done in Canada, but I also had a consultation in Quebec while waiting. In the end Dr. Gagner was able to do the surgery in September 2017, and I decided to go to him. Yesterday I sent the payment and booked my hotel and flight. Now I find myself terrified. I know this is something I need to do, and I know everything will be okay, but it is suddenly real and I worry that I didn't try hard enough without it, or that I will fail and still be obese and unhealthy. Has anyone else dealt with these pre-op worries? And how did you overcome them?
